I actually do NOT give a flying F if others have executed it earlier than. It is nonetheless… STUPID.”
And he saved going, posting a collection of tweets over the previous 24 hours doubling-down on his reverence for stringed devices, and, weirdly, claiming he couldn’t “see it or hear it” when the SNL episode aired, whereas criticizing Bridgers’ beloved skeleton costumes as “distracting” and calling the axe annihilation “previous, improper, copy cat… seems to be indignant, harmful, wasteful, pointless.”
Bridgers saved having enjoyable with it, posting an epic Instagram shot of the second with the caption “received some actually nice suggestions from my efficiency! Subsequent time I am going to simply burn it and it will likely be dearer,” dunking on Crosby for his gripe about how she did not even bust-up an costly instrument. Whereas plenty of musicians got here to Bridgers’ protection, together with Kathleen Edwards and Jason Isbell, it was Flea who had the perfect response to the Cros-plaint that “it is what you do if you cannot write.”
“Hendrix could not write?” Flea tweeted.
